Thought about it, but it only runs on Windows 7 & 8. Still running Vista here.

I have tried it on Windows but not my Mac. It feels faster overall. It loads the develop module faster.

Faster than which previous version? I'm still running 3.6 on Win 7.

Seems to me that I remember that early 4.x versions were considerably slower (on the same hardware).

apparently that's the number 1 thing they tried to do with this release, was make it faster overall.

people with Mac's are gonna be pissed as it now requires Lion as a minimum

The same as Windows people with 4 that did not support XP. I should try the beta on my Mac and see, my old 2007ish Mini is getting long in the tooth.

I wish they would include multiple users. I have 2 photographers and 2 editors, but we can work on each others work....

Per Adobe's Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 is now availiable.

»www.adobe.com/products/photoshop···oom.html

said by Facebook :
Lightroom 5 is now available as a standalone license and as a free update for Creative Cloud members! We've added must-have features like Smart Previews, Radial Filter, and the Advanced Healing Brush.

If you have the full CC, yes.

I am concerned about this list:

Known Issues

Fullscreen Mode does not show the next image in your selection. This occurs only when you have selected a series of images before entering Fullscreen mode.
Video playback is not currently supported in Fullscreen mode.
There is no error message informing that offline photos and videos are not exported to slideshows.
The slide after a video clip is often not shown. This only occurs when using the Manual Slideshow feature.
Custom slideshow templates will default to 480×270 on export. This only impacts custom slideshow templates created in previous versions of Lightroom.
The slideshow appears as a black screen occasionally. This only occurs when a video file is chosen as the first slide.
Star ratings cannot be applied while previewing or viewing a Slideshow.
Deleting a book in the Book Module may occasionally cause another book to disappear.
XMP metadata changes are not automatically written to file when the original file is offline.
Canon cameras are not detected when using Tethered Capture in Windows 8. This only occurs on Windows 8.
Offline photos go missing from Lightroom when moving folder of images to a different volume.
GPS metadata on videos created on an Apple iPhone is not imported.
Basic metadata is not imported with video files. This only occurs when imported directly from the camera. As a workaround, please copy the files from camera to your harddrive and then import into Lightroom.
When utilizing the “Merge to HDR” feature with Photoshop, the resulting HDR image contains metadata from the last selected photo.
Photos adjusted using Process Version 2003 incorrectly display a “Post Crop Vignette: Paint Overlay” History step. Selecting a subsequent History State can reset existing settings that follow that state in the History panel. This reset cannot be undone, effectively deleting any settings that have been applied after the selected History State. This only occurs with images adjusted in PV2003.

Seems like more than one show stopper in there.

I tried it out quickly this morning. On the one photo I worked on the develop module did feel faster. I noticed my memory usage seemed better too.
